8.15.14 USMTS Modifieds Results

FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis.—Friday night at the Mississippi Thunder Speedway, the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup made its third stop of the week in the Dairy State and Rodney Sanders milked his third victory and another $3,000 out of the prize pool.

Despite starting on the front row for the 40-lap main event, Sanders fell in line behind Bob Timm at the start of the race, and then drifted back to third when Jason Krohn zipped past both drivers on lap 4.

Sanders got around Timm for second three laps later and began to challenge Krohn for the lead, eventually taking over the top spot with 13 laps complete.

Timm, however, roared back ahead of both drivers on the next lap, but Sanders fought back and reclaimed the lead with 18 circuits in the books.

Meanwhile, tenth-starting Jesse Glenz was clawing his way to the front and raced into the second spot with eight laps to go.

There was no catching the defending USMTS national champion, however, and Sanders sailed on to his 23rd United States Modified Touring Series win of the 2014 campaign.

It also gave the 24-year-old from Happy, Texas, his 41st career USMTS triumph, leaving him just one shy of tying the mark of Tommy Myer, who sits fourth on the all-time wins list.

Glenz, who recorded a third-place finish at his home track the previous night, added a runner-up finish to his weekend on Friday night while Krohn came home third ahead of Jeremy Houle, giving the MB Customs chassis a top-four sweep.

Zack VanderBeek, who started 13 after winning the first Real Racing Wheels “B” Main, climbed the ladder to finish fifth while Myer pocketed a sixth-place paycheck.

Stormy Scott finished seventh after starting 22nd on the 26-car grid and earned the Mesilla Valley Transportation Hard Charger Award. Lucas Schott, Joe Duvall and Craig Thatcher rounded out the top 10.

The four-day weekend for the rugged USMTS road warriors wraps up on Saturday at the Ogilvie Raceway in Ogilvie, Minn. Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Street Stocks and Hornets will round out the racing action. The first green flag is scheduled to wave at 6:30 p.m.

Adult tickets are $20, seniors get in for $16, kids ages 7 to 14 are just $5 and children 6 and under are free. Pit passes are $35.

Casey’s General Stores will have $2-off coupons at their stores in Cambridge, Milaca, Princeton and Ogilvie. John Allen and his Sour Patch Kids/Oreo Modified will be at the Casey’s located at 400 W. Hwy. 23 in Ogilvie from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
